back. i'm joy reid in for melissa harris-perry. a shortage of water in the state of texas has left residents thirsty, frustrated, and saying what the frac. according to recent reports, the process of hydraulic fracking, more commonly known as fracking, which is used as oil extraction, is making the drought problem in the lone star state much worse. these areas in red that you're seeing on the map are parts of texas that are experiencing extreme and exceptional drought. the drought problem has become so bad that at least one texas resident is actually wishing for a natural disaster to help. rancher buck owens told the guardian newspaper that, quote, we've got to get floods. we've got to get a hurricane to move up in our country and just saturate everything to replenish the aquifer. while fracking makes up less than 1% of the water use in texas, in certain counties, according to a university of texas study, fracking uses up 50% of the water supply. but before we go any further, just what is fracking? i'm going to leave that explanation to "all in's" chris hayes, who not only explaine
was born. unless the texas republican senator formally renounces that citizenship, he will remain a citizen of both countries, legal experts say." ted cruz released his canadian birth certificate in response to inquiries from the "dallas morning news." today ted cruz's senate press secretary released this oddly worded statement. "to our knowledge, he never had canadian citizenship." now, when a senator's staff speak for the senator says "to our knowledge," everything that follows that is a statement that everyone in that senate office knows might have to be quickly revised, and so it has been. the "washington post" is now reporting that ted cruz will renounce his canadian citizenship. cruz said, "now the dallas morning news says that i may technically have dual citizenship. assuming that is true, then sure, i will renounce any canadian citizenship. nothing against canada, but i'm an american by birth and as a u.s. senator i believe i should be only an american because i was a u.s. citizen at birth, because i left calgary when i was 4, and have lived my entire life since then in the u.s., an
. these are just rough numbers, about a million new jobs in the state of texas in the last five years. roughly a million lost jobs in california. that is amazing. points is what we are seeing right now is one of the great wealth transfers in american history geographically from states like california that don't get it right, my home state of illinois that don't get it right and states that do get it right like texas. this is one reason to be bullish on the future of texas. the interesting thing is texas and california are the two highest immigration states. the tax system is a much better job of economically assimilating immigrants so they are successful here. tell a foreign more of a welfare invites immigrants and the welfare system at a much higher pace than texas does. people come to texas, in my opinion, for jobs. people come to california for welfare grade i think you see the differing economic outcomes as a result. texas is the model other states should be emulating. see that entire event coming up today at 5:00 eastern. live at 7:00, c-span will host a town hall looking at immigration a

on that and a look at the ncaa best conference, we turn to college football writer for yahoo sports. >> texas a&m comes into this year having already lost a lot of dies and johnny has had a really tough off season. so it's going tock interesting to see how texas a&m jells together. how manzel shakes off this rough off season. can he concentrate on football after everything he has been through? after partying winning the heisman, all this new celebrity and fame, and i think that's what people are most excited to see, is whether johnny can be the excitable player that everybody saw last year, and not be kind of the poster boy for a heisman fail. as he has been this off season. i think what we saw from the s exc already this weekend, proves that this is going to be a formidable conference. you saw vandy, and olemiss play a nail biter, which was really exciting and those aren't even two of top in the conference, i expect a lot out of alabama. i think they are going to show they are the most come innocence team in the conference, it could be kind of violent, and kind of exciting to watch if you are
the real protections we've had, and you saw right away in texas. >> within hours. >> within hours, texas had enacted a reapportionment plan that a three-judge federal court in washington declared not only was in effect, but intentionally rachellely discriminatory and therefore illegal, as soon as they threw out the fact that texas had to get such laws clear, texas announced they would institute -- they would effectuate the all right declared racially discriminatory redistricting plan, and states are coming up with all these different voter suppression items. so yes, that plus the effects on the judiciary, and another thing, we've had increasingly in the last 20 years draconian minimum -- mandatory minimum sentences, which means that a prosecutor, not a judge, really hat the negotiating leverage. the prosecutor says to a defendant if i don't plead guilty, i'll give you a 30-year sentence. if you ploo ed guilty, we'll make it six months. and the odds -- the disparity is so great that there's tremendous pressure, especially when there isn't adequate legal representation on innocent defendan

[ buzzer ] >> oh, god. he wants to be a star now? >> stephanie: yeah. i'm a star. no. are you clear of warrants and stuff. and zimmerman said, he was clear. he said calm down dude. why don't you slow down for me. the officer says
. with a-rod, different. always a man without a country. he left seattle, went to texas with that huge contract. he never really fit in there. he went to the yankees, obviously, and he was never considered a real yankee. whatever that means. even with the 2009 world series. so it wasn't like he had this beloved fan base out there to begin with. then in 2009 he admits or confirms a report that he doped when he was younger. said it was for a limited tile. if anybody felt they could forgive him then, he's blown that up now. >> and to the point, he's been combative throughout this process. part of the press conference tonight, what was he like? >> well, he was really subdued. no other way to say it. i would not say he was combative. at least in this particular outing. he was not. seemed he was really holding back emotions. kept saying repeatedly that he would be able to say more at a later time. kept saying repeatedly that he didn't want to disrupt the appeal process and wanted that to play out. i also found interesting, anderson, the reaction outside here. to rodriguez. you saw him sign s
arises when a couple married in california or another state moves to state like florida or texas that does not respect their marriage. until we succeed in getting rid of the remaining marriage bans in these states it's clear those governments will not recognize the couple that is married and they will get some but probably not all of the federal benefits they would get if they were living in a state that respected their marriage. at administration has been coming out with guidance on various benefits since the decision came down so we have some answers at this point. it seems pretty clear for immigration purposes, the 70-thre federal government will respect the marriages that were married in any jurisdiction that allows it no matter where the couples live now. federal employees will be able to get spousal health insurance and other benefits if they're legally married in any state regardless where they currently live. same for military spouses. so we have some clarity on some of these issues. the two big ones that are sort out of out standing and waiting for guidance from the admi
will take it down another 0.15%. we are north of the 13th largest economy in the world in texas, so you have to remain competitive. if you want people to invest more, if you allow people to keep more of their money, we know as conservatives, they will either suspended or save it and invest, which is good for the county. we overhauled our worker compensation system. we have some of the highest rates in the nation as well as in the region. we revamped our system, moving from an antiquated system, moving to a new system that will essentially safe employers, people who create jobs, 15% to 20% on their premiums every year. people always say, stop talking about social problems. i think that is nonsense. you take every social issue known to man, whether it is high incarceration rates, drug and substance abuse issues -- i think they can all be traced to one key ingredient, and that is the breakdown of the family unit. this year in oklahoma we said we would do things to promote the family, going on a campaign to express why strong families are not as good for society, they are good for the economy, a
issues fighting for texas and fighting for conservative principles. i think it is likely that i am going to stay out of incumbent primaries across the country. either supporting incumbents or opposing incumbents. i think it's likely that i'm going to stay out of them. >> what does cruz's tell us about his future plans? we bring back the gaggle. michael, i'll go with you on this one. you're former head of the rnc. ted cruz on one hand i look at it and he thinks, hey, i was a challenger to the establishment. the establishment did everything they could to defeat me. what does he owe the establishment? in many ways consistent for him not to back cornyn but did cornyn work his tail off for cruz's endorsement. >> did he that for good reason because he knows he needs to have the tea party around him. cruz is very definitely saying you know what? i'm not going to play with any incumbent around the country which, by the way, means you too, mr. cornyn. cruz is cutting his own path and he is doing so in a way that is really putting a lot of the establishment types back on their heels because they d

rates, which have come with a price tag, which is why deeply red states like texas have embraced the same kind of approach eric holder talked about this week. why some very conservative politicians in washington, like kentucky's rand paul and utah's mike lee were calling for federal sentencing reform even before holder spoke up. we watched play out this week a break from the norm since barack obama became president. there was knee-jerk reaction but support from republicans, and a lot of republicans who said nothing. is it a bigger break than that even. voices in 1986 and for years after 1986 pleading with americans to rethink that law. but there wasn't much room for them in either party. modern republican party was built on being tougher than the liberal softies on the other side. democrats became obsessed with disproving that claim. it's where stiff mandatory sentenci sentencing, three strikes and you're out, where the incarceration of more than 2.4 million americans, it's where it all comes from. the question is whether we've reached a new place, whether the tougher on crime im
, sir. and then there is this man, alexander, ferdman organizing a crime ring in texas. it hasn't stopped him from coming to california, setting up a drug rehab clinic and billing taxpayers. even though, felons are barred from running drug med cal centers. >> how can a guy like you run a drug rehab in california. this is a major insurance car crash scheme in texas. >> i was convicted, but it's not what it seems. >> reporter: in the last two fiscal years, taxpayers spent nearly $186 million supposedly treating drug and alcohol abuse patients in california. our investigation with the center for investigative reporting found half of that money, or about $94 million has gone to clinics that have shown questionable billing practices or signs of fraud. joy jaffers former drug medical supper visor says she complained to the state for years about all the obvious fraud. >> we found billing records for people in jail. one person dead. people who said they didn't need this kind of treatment. >> uh-huh. >> clinics closed on a certain day, billing for that certain day. >> uh-huh. >> none of
is across the street from a mosque in spring branch texas outside of houston. the muslims across the country who have been seeing this are pretty darn angry. the employees of the shopping center say that members of the mosque are taking parking spaces that are meant for customers, especially during their celebration times, like ramadan or the end of ramadan. the owner of the shopping center says he has no idea who put up the signs. but they have since been taken down. are the signs illegal? they aren't right. they're ugly. it's not nice to say that. but are they illegal? our legal panelists here to sort this out. paul callan, danny sovalos. and we were having spirited conversation about first amendment rights, making the sign and saying those ugly words. and then, of course, discrimination. and civil rights. so danny, where do those two things come together oh are clash, or do they? >> first, after 1964, if you have a company, you hang out your shingle and you discriminate against someone based on their race or religion or any of the protected classes, you're violating civil rights act. the
on in north carolina and texas, this anti-women's stuff and all this, that is not the way to advertise. this is a national story. the national races are going to get tainted by what's going on in texas and north carolina in terms of the anti-abortion, anti-union, anti-everything. i think the republicans have trouble. they really do. they don't -- the sort of the cooler heads don't seem to have the vision or the willingness to prevail, and if they don't prevail, i do not think nate silver is going to be right. nate silver is usually right, but i think it's going to be tough. >> well, and -- and nate silver is usually right. people in new york think as long as he's predicting democrats are going to win. >> all right. let me just say that gayle collins writes in "the new york times" politics of a screeching halt. she writes in part this, one of the least attractive legacies of barack obama will be the way he empowered freshman senators to believe they were only one or two good speeches away from the presidency. right now the show horses of the united states senate are rand paul of kentuck
-year-old and her brother. they issued an amber alert saying he may have gone to texas or canada with the children. that's after he set the house on fire 40 miles east of san diego and killed their mother and an unidentified child. >> i can't fathom what you were thinking. the damage is done. i'm begging you to let my daughter go. you've taken everything else. hannah, we all love you very much. if you have a chance, you take it. you run. you'll be found. >> paul, this father terribly distraught and making whatever plea he can to the person who has taken the children. >> reporter: absolutely. from what we understand, he was a long time friend of jim dimaggio. others saying they knew each other for 20 years and he knew the children since birth. let's listen to one family friend's emotional appeal at a vigil last night. >> i want people to know that man jim was loved by that family and treated very, very well. i can't imagine why he would do this horrific thing to people that loved him so much and considered him family. he needs to bring that girl home. >> reporter: you may have cau
conviction for fleeing a police officer, that's back in texas in 1995. so yes, they are extremely worried about him. right now he would be considered a flight risk, even if he were arrested so therefore when they issued a warrant today for his arrest for the murder of the mother, they made sure attached to that would be a 1 million dollar bond should he be taken into custody. they levelled one charge at him, the homicide but likely to follow, a second homicide charge, possibly kidnapping charges and arson charge and a cruelty to animals charge because anderson, also burned in the fire was a dog. so a whole host of charges against this man who they consider to be very dangerous. >> as i said, the remains found in the house were consistent or other remains were consistent with those of an 8-year-old child. do we know much about the relationship between this man and the family? i mean, i understand he was kind of life-long friends of -- or at least acquaintances of the family? >> no, it is friends, around soren. very strong relationship, possibly even best friends. they say that mr. dimaggio
a police officer in texas in 1995. yes, they are extremely worried about him. he is a colossal flight risk, even if he was arrested. they issued a warrant today for the murder of his mother. attached to that, a $1 million bond should he be taken into custody. they just leveled one charge, likely to follow, a second homicide charge, kidnapping charges, arson and cruelty to animal charge because also burned in the fire was a dog. they consider him to be very dangerous. >> the remains found in the house were consistent with an 8-year-old child. do we know much about the relationship between this man and the family? i understand he was kind of lifelong friends of or at least acquaintances of the family. >> it is friends, anderson. very strong relationship. possibly best friends. mr. dimaggio and the father knew each other more than 20 years. he knew the children since their births. in fact, the relationship was so close, they called him uncle. an extremely close relationship. what is alleged here right now is absolutely the ultimate betrayal. >> thank you again, the breaking news. a vehicle sp
